Sharing Creativity = Potential Success

This Wired article describes how an unknown comedy trio decided to write and produce music videos and sketches, which they put online and gave away for free. They encouraged remixing and sharing under a creative commons license, rather than trying to lock their creations with standard copyright.

The result? Word spread, and now they're on Saturday Night Live.

Conclusion: If you want to get into a creative field, just do it. Find a way to make your art. Network with others. Showcase your talents on the Internet. Leverage the perks of your day job if you can. If you're good enough and persistent, you have a good shot at success. Certainly more so than all the dreamers out there who wait for something to happen.

See: South Park. They didn't even use the internet, just a very funny video Chrismas card.
